This box was provided complimentary for review.
What is it? Fortune Cookie Soap Box How much? $19.99 per quarter, plus $8 shipping to Canada. Prices in US dollars. What's in it? 8 mini size bath & body products from an upcoming collection. Ships 4 times per year. 

Fortune Cookie Soap is a company that produces handcrafted bath and body products. FCS has a major product launch four times per year, so each season FCS puts together a limited edition box containing 8 mini-size products from the upcoming collection. The Soap Box ships approximately two weeks prior to the launch, giving subscribers an opportunity to try out the new fragrances and formulas, before committing to full size versions. The box also includes a $10 gift code, which can be used on the FCS website to purchase your favourite items.

The theme for Winter 2016 is "Through the Wardrobe", based on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, part of the Chronicles of Narnia series.

First Look

Product Card

Always Winter OCD Hand Sanitizer (full size)
Always winter, but never Christmas for those germs! This OCD Hand Sanitizer will keep the germs frozen away with holiday notes of evergreen fir needles, warm cinnamon, crisp cranberries, apple curls and cedarwood.

Hide and Seek Whipped Hand Soap
1...2...3...4...5, are you hiding yet or seeking marshmallowy, soft whipped soap? Chase after the scent of decadent blends of dark chocolate covered espresso beans, allspice and a light coconut cream. Who said anyone was too old for a game of hide and seek? Whipped to fluffy perfection, use our whipped soap as a shaving cream or an all-over body wash.

Dream of a Dream Dusting Powder
Step out of the shower and into a new world with our brand new dusting powder! A comforting and soothing blend of lavender, vanilla, soft musk and patchouli will brush your skin with the softness of pleasant dreams. Microfine powders and clays absorb sweat and smooth your skin while the essential oils keep you feeling fresh all day.

Father Christmas Whipped Cream Body Butter
He’s come at last! The witch may have kept him out for a long time, but our Whipped Cream has come at long last -- with a chilly blast of winter air blowing through blue juniper brush, dusted with frosty snow and hints of iced vanilla cupcakes.

Deep Magic Shampoo Bar
There is a magic deeper still that goes back before the dawn of time. This shampoo bar will restore your hair to life with a revitalizing blend of rosemary, fresh garden herbs and revitalizing mint. Even the witch’s magic couldn’t keep those dead-ends dead for good! 

Lion's Breath Perfume Oil 
Wrong will be right when this perfume oil comes in sight. Be rejuvenated by the true King himself with fresh and invigorating scents of glistening winter frost and fir needles dripping with the sweet nectar of ripened pomegranates. Your senses will feel alive again as every last drop of this perfume oil graces your skin! 

Small Favors Pedi Bomb
It doesn’t take a lot to unwind and relax, only warm honey with a hint of the Professor’s tobacco pipe, brightened by spiced citrus slices. This milk bath will have you thankful for small favors!

Sweeties Fortune Cookie Soap (full size)
Don’t even try to resist the candied sweetness of Turkish Delight with this Fortune Cookie Soap. Scented with traditional rosewater and toasted pistachios, amaretto and warm, buttery cookies, it will leave you asking the witch for more. Just remember, a little goes a long way!

Here is the fortune from inside the soap!

The Winter 2016 Fortune Cookie Soap Box included eight samples from the new "Through the Wardrobe" collection. Two of the items are full size, while the rest are deluxe samples. Subscribers also receive a $10 gift card to purchase full size products from the FCS website!

If handmade bath and body products interest you, this box is a great way to sample different FCS products. I'd recommend this box for a teen or tween due to the whimsical themes and product branding. One concern would be for those with allergies or sensitive skin. While the website lists ingredients for each product, most of the sample sizes do not. Be sure to check the online listings to see if these products are right for you. Many products are vegan friendly!
The Through the Wardrobe collection is available now! The Spring 2017 Soap Box is on sale now! It ships in late February/early March so be sure to sign up soon!
